The Youth Leadership Council is the organizing body for Teen programs through the Rosenthal JCC. Meeting every six to eight weeks, this council helps plan and organize social events, volunteer opportunities, JCC family holiday celebrations, the JCC's annual Children's Carnival, and The Mitzvah Project (social action volunteer activities with the Middle School and High school Divisions).
Connecting, empowering and building self-esteem is has never been more important for 7-9th graders. These groups enables girls and separately boys to meet with their peers in a non-judgemental, supportive and Jewish environment and develop unique friendships and social skills.
The Mitzvah Project at the Rosenthal JCC helps integrate acts of chesed - loving kindness - into children's lives on a regular basis.
One Saturday night a month, your child can come hang out with other teens, enjoy a pizza dinner and a fun recreational activity while gaining the skills needed to be part of a social peer group. Following dinner, the group will venture out for activities such as bowling, ice skating or the movies.
High school students are invited to learn to work with children who have developmental, physical or emotional disabilities through our Special Needs Intern Training Institute.
The RJCC offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to help Teens develop personally while providing support, comfort and inspiration to others.
